                The villa provided great accommodation for all of our family. The children loved the themed rooms. The location was perfect for visiting the Disney parks and had the benefit of lots of restaurants and supermarkets within a few minutes drive. We'd definitely consider staying here again.

                We had a very enjoyable stay at Lucy's wonderful vacation home. The property was located close to everything. Several restaurants, convinience stores, and supermarkets were 2 minutes away. The theme parks were also extremely close by. The pool and spa were great as the whole family enjoyed the fact that they were heated and the game room was also a hit. The home feels comfortable enough to sustain a family of 16 and there is plenty of parking as well. And I cannot forget Dee from the management company. As soon as I called for a question, she actually showed up 5 minutes later to help us out. All in all, I would definitely stay here again.

                We are 8 male golfers who come annually to the Orlando area in early March for 9 days of golf and relaxation. This was the first time we stayed at Simba’s Sunset, but it will not be the last. Of all of the homes we’ve rented over the past 15 or so years, this one far outshined all of the others, and that’s a rave, because some of the others were very nice too. The home is great for golfers – especially if you enjoy cooking your own meals, as we do. The kitchen was well equipped, with a great lineup of appliances. I wish I had the stove and refrigerator in my kitchen at home, and the accoutrements in the kitchen were more than adequate . We were able to pull both of our vehicles off the street and up near the garage/game room, where we were able to easily unload our clubs for the night – groceries too. The pool, and particularly the heated spa, were well used and appreciated by the group. The gated community was something we have not had before, and the area is ideal for taking a nice walk. Suffice to say that we enjoyed everything about this home, and we would recommend it to anyone, but it is ideally suited for a group of 8 golfers. We have already blocked out our dates for 2014.

                Recommended for: Tourists without a car, girls getaway, pet owners, people with disabilities, age 55+, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, sightseeing.

                We had a group of 11 including 4 children and found the house to be perfect. It was clean and furnished well. The location was great for all the parks. The pool and hot tub were very nice after a long day at the parks. We would definitely return.

                We stayed at Simba's Sunset last weekend and it was everything it was advertised to be. Nice big bedrooms, nice decor and a fully stocked kitchen with any cookware or utensil you could ever need. We had two family's …..and the kids LOVED the game room. They also loved the bunk beds and the fact that they had their own TV. It was so nice to come "home" to a private pool and hot tub after being around throngs of strangers all day in Disney. We would recommend to anyone and will stay here again. Gorgeous!

                My family recently stayed at Simba's Sunset located in Formosa Gardens. The house is located in a upscale gated community with lots of space between houses. Located within 8 minutes to Disney World, within minutes to Publix grocery and Target plus oodles of restaurants in the area, it is a perfect spot. The house is large and had everything a family would want on a holiday. The pool and hot tub are nice sizes to accommodate the whole family. The kitchen was well stocked and the oven is powered by gas which I think is a bonus over an electric range. Without a question Simba's Sunset is a excellent choice for your family for a Disney holiday.

                Our entire experience with Mickey Homes and Simba's Sunset was wonderful. The reservation was simple and we found it a little less expensive than some of the other rental companies. Our group of 12 was able to spread out and get comfy in this spacious home. We even had one room that went unused. We loved coming back to this house after a day at the parks to swim, relax and play video games. There were so many game systems! The kids didn't even play them all! The location is perfect, only minutes from the Disney parks but also close to restaurants and stores. Our experience with Lucy and Mickey Homes was superb. All e-mails leading up to the reservation were responded to immediately. When a smoke alarm battery beeped during our stay, management came out right away and took care of it. And when we accidentally left something behind when we departed, Lucy went to the home right away to retrieve it and mail it to me. We are 100% satisfied. Thanks for a great vacation!

                The house was offered for rent for 15 adults and one infant. Our group was 8 adults and 5 children, ages 5 to 12. The house was staged for showing and not adequately provision for a large group. We rented the house for lodging expecting to cook and eat two meals a day in the house. We traveled by air to Orlando. On arrival the five bathrooms had only 4 rolls of toilet paper, there were no paper towels in the kitchen, and no Kleenex in the house. The two dining tables had a total of 10 chairs. Whoops, where does the rest of the group set? There were no knifes in the kitchen for preparing food, no pizza pans (two are needed), no waffle maker, and not enough large pans. We had to do spaghetti in two batches because of the lack of pans. My spouse purchased a $15 knife set, something we did not dare put in our luggage to bring home. We had a child that got sick and threw up. There were no extra bed sheets in the house. Extra sheets are needed with children. The master bedroom bath also needs a bath mat for the shower for safety. The tile is very slick. Maintenance problems: (1) The master bathroom had a very cheap loose toilet seat. I reported the loose toilet seat, but before maintenance got there the next day, I figured out that the seat snapped on. After maintenance left the hinge on the seat broke. I gave up and purchased and installed a $16 toilet seat. (2) Towel rack in bedroom bath off of garage fell to floor when touched. Shown to Dee’s Maintenance, but was not repaired. (3) Screws holding the backs on the 2 bar stools kept falling out. No screw driver in house to tighten them. (4) December 28, 5:30 A.M., the smoke detector in the bedroom next to laundry room began chirping. We had to disable the alarm to stop the chirping. Reported the alarm problem and requested repair to Dee’s maintenance. No repair was made. (5) December 28, 6:00 A.M., CO2 detector began beeping. Batteries in detector had to be replaced to stop the beeping. (6) The 12 volt air pump for the large inflatable pool toys did not work. Pump needs to be replaced. We have rented 10 other houses since 2000 and never experience such a poorly provision house. Nor have I had to make repairs in any house I have rented. Our kids and grand kids enjoyed the pool, hot tub, tv’s and electronic games. But, because of the lack of basic provisions and maintenance problems I cannot recommend this house as a vacation rental. We paid a premium for this house and the valu
